Congratulations, Rob! I know that there was a lot of discussion about which frog you should get and if R.i. varaderos were a good first frog and all, so it seems you are doing a wonderful job with them. Good on you!

Keep us updated on the egg's progress.

Take care, Richard.

I would bet he will sell or trade them. House rules. He only gets 2 vivs. Most of us have house rules. Fortunately, our house rules are "only one bedroom full of vivs!".

I am limited to 2 tanks and I have 1 set up. Also the egg looks good. I also have seen intense courting in a clay have that naturly formed. I will check tomarrow but I have a feeling that this was not their first clutch.

Congrats, Rob. Once the male starts transporting and the female starts feeding them, she will slow down egg-laying considerably. If you want to keep the egg production high, removing the eggs and rearing them separately would be the way to go. The tadpoles seem to be very hardy and not difficult to raise.

Good luck, Richard.

Congrats. I'm in the same boat myself with campana auratus. I've got 5 tads in the water and at least 2 more tads soon to be in the water and this is my first breeding. I've had this pair since last Sept and I am a complete novice with tad raising at this point, but so far, they're growing with their diet of flake food and tadpole bites, with java moss in their containers along with pieces of magnolia leaves. So far, only one death, which was the first tad, which never really did much. I have had back legs emerge on my oldest tad in the past week. They grow like weeds. Now if only my variabilis or azureiventris would breed, as they are both calling now.
